After unboxing the unit, I set it up to test on a couple milk crates and shot the image on my wall at about 85" wide. Plugged in to my PC my native desktop of 1600x1200 had to be reduced down to 1024x768 before I could switch the VGA cable over. Checking the image closely I looked for flaws such as blank patches, rainbows, or any other types of problems that would cause a reduction in enjoyment of the picture. I found that the pixels are way more pronounced fully zoomed in from the unit than if I were to just move the projector back to get a bigger picture. I also noticed that the whites and blacks were displaying very nicely considering I was shooting on a semi tan color wall (no screen).
Bulb life is rated at 2000 hours, but from what i've read, if the unit is set in economy mode it will extend the life about 1000 hours. Under heavy usage of 8 hours a day or so, that would equate to approximately an entire year of use. Average use of about 2-4 hours a day would extend bulb life to over 2 years.
Though I havent seen it project over 85" yet (my plans are a 110" screen), the projector is rated to shoot a 300" screen. Feel free to compare any of those numbers to a plasma or projection big screen of any kind. DLP projectors yeild the most bang-for-the-buck available.
I was able to play a video game at 1280x1024 85hz on it and it performed flawlessly. DVD movies are just incredible, I cant wait to get it hooked up in the living room.
As for the bulb, it just flashed a message up saying we've used over 1980 hours, so I guess it's time to re-order a new one (though i think we've had it on economy, so it should last a while longer). We have a regular bedroom tv we use for general showing, or for the kids cartoons, etc- because the bulbs are so expensive, we generally don't use the projector for everyday watching. And as we're all at work, the tv isn't on all day either. I'm thinking there must have been a bad batch of bulbs for those of you who had problems- ours has worked great.
The picture quality is great, especially in HD. I won't say it's as clean as a plasma screen tv, but if you have the space, you can have a screen that is big as any wall in your house. I built a screen that is 77 inches. The picture is stunning. The fan fades to the back as you are watching. It's quiet enough to forget it's on when you are watching a movie.
The only issue I have with the projector is that the connection is odd. You have to find a 16 pin cable that connects to the RBG RCA cable to connect to the DVD. Most stores don't carry these but you can find them on EBAY. Just for the record, this projector is great in my book. Just follow the instructions in order to maintain the life of your bulb and you will be fine.
(Update) I would never buy another BenQ product again in life. After my original bulb went, I purchased on from the company and it lasted for 240 hrs. Although I did buy it early, it was only guaranteed for 90 days. The offered absolutely nothing in return. I will say I enjoyed it while it lasted, but never again.
